Injuries are a part of football. Even ones that don't happen on the field.

Ravens defensive end Chris Canty missed each practice last week for what was described as an illness. As it turns out, he suffered an infection in his wrist which ended up requiring surgery, coach John Harbaugh announced on Monday.

In addition, cornerback Asa Jackson suffered a toe injury which has turned out to be fairly serious. He appears to be headed to the injured reserve-designated to return list.

Left guard Kelechi Osemele was also injured during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Colts, but his doesn't appear as serious.
